Hi Lissau - we have had a very chilly wet haily sort of day here today too. Very low cloud and I expect that in the morning the surrounding hills will be blanketed with snow. Our first REAL day of winter - it has been cold and wet prior to this but I think that was just practice for today.

Thanks for sharing. I don't know why 'we Northerners' never think about it snowing and being so cold 'Down Under'. Oh, how I wish I had taken the time to visit Australia when I lived on that side of the world.

Sending you some warm air - soon.

Agree Sandy!
i "know" it is winter down there, but in my mind i always picture Australia as hot.

But then, a few years ago one DD moved to AZ. to avoid winter. Ah, no. not when you live in the mountains, kid. Within a month she had snow up to her armpits!

Lissau! Hope you've plenty of nice warm quilts !! Spent 2 beautiful weeks there (Brisbane, Marrachydore spelling sorry) area and yes, hard to think it is the opposite of the states! Stay warm. Maybe that ski lodge will have a lot of customers spending time on the slopes and money in the economy.

Yes, I always thought Scottsdale would be the most wonderful place in the world to retire . . . until I found out they actually can have some very harsh winters . . .
